Privet Plant Advantages In Landscaping 

Privets are broadleaf evergreen that can be used as living fence shrubs. They come in both green and variegated forms. Some popular varieties of privet are Golden Vicary, which has yellow leaves, and Variegatum. Privet proliferates, and it's a good choice for privacy screens or hedges. It is an excellent choice for landscaping because of the following reasons:

 

 1) Privet is adaptable to most soil types.

 

 Privet plants can be planted in sandy or clay soils and tolerate wet or dry conditions. It thrives in acidic soils but can also tolerate alkaline conditions. However, it grows better in well-drained soils.

 

 2) Privet is evergreen

 

 Privet has broad green leaves resistant to disease and insects, which means you do not have to be concerned about your privet hedge for most of the year. The only times during the year when it might need some attention are immediately after planting or pruning, during the winter months when it is dormant, and when you are trying to control the size of privet borders.

 

 3) Privet needs little maintenance

 

 Privet plant does not need to be fertilized, but it does need water regularly. You should apply fertilizer in the early spring and summer because privets don't grow as quickly in the fall. Pruning private plants only need to be done when they get unruly or too big. You can do this in the spring.

 

 4) Privet has few pests

 

 Privet plants are resistant to most insects and diseases, but you should watch for scale infestations, leaf miners, leaf spots, and spider mites. However, these aren't a problem and can be dealt with quickly by an organic pesticide or miticide.

 

 5) Privet is a fast grower

 

 Privet proliferates and can fill in an area very quickly. This makes it perfect for borders or screens that require quick coverage. It will generally reach about eight feet tall within ten years.

 

 6) Privet tolerates most climates

 

 Privet is a hardy plant that can survive in most climates. It is cold hardy into USDA Zone 4, which means it can tolerate colder temperatures than other evergreen plants commonly used for hedges and privacy screens. This makes private hedge suitable for northern states and a good choice for heavy snowfall areas during the winter.

 

 If you are interested in private living fence shrubs, consider several things before planting them. While private is adaptable and tolerates most conditions, it does not like hot or dry climates. You may also want to prepare your soil ahead of time by adding organic matter before you plant a private fence.
